Now talking about his dad’s happiness, Abhishek recently told IANS, “Yes, dad shared the picture of my turbaned look and he said that he felt proud. My Dadima (grandmother) was Sikh, so there is an emotional attachment to the whole thing. Though the first time when I wore the turban to get my look done for the shooting, I was more focused on my performance. But later when I saw the footage, I felt special. I think my Dadima would have been happy to see my as sardar on-screen.”
Also starring Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal, ‘Manmarziyaan’ is all set to hit the marquee on September 14, 2018.
